Anti-austerity protest in Athens against bailout deal and protesters set TV van on fire

Obama: Netanyahu cannot stop Iran deal

US president says PM will not succeed in using Congress to defeat the deal; Kerry: Israel 'is safer' thanks to agreement, noting critics of deal 'never offer a realistic alternative'.

US President Barack Obama on Tuesday defended the agreement reached with Iran over its nuclear program, making it clear that the purpose of the deal was simply to prevent the Islamic Republic from attaining nuclear weapons – not to curb its global power.

Congress still needs to sign off on the deal, which could result in a fierce battle in the legislature. In an exclusive New York Times interview, Obama said that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “perhaps thinks he can further influence the congressional debate" but that he was confident the agreement would be approved.

"But after that’s done, if that’s what he thinks is appropriate, then I will sit down, as we have consistently throughout my administration, and then ask some very practical questions: How do we prevent Hezbollah from acquiring more sophisticated weapons? How do we build on the success of Iron Dome, which the United States worked with Israel to develop and has saved Israeli lives?

"In the same way I’m having conversation with the gulf countries about how do we have a more effective interdiction policy, how do we build more effective governance structures and military structures in Sunni areas that have essentially become a void that (the Islamic State) has filled or that, in some cases, Iranian activities can exploit?”

The White House on Tuesday announced that Obama would send Defense Secretary Ash Carter to the Middle East next week. The only confirmed stop on the trip was Israel, although officials said Carter would also visit other countries in the region.

US Secretary of State John Kerry lashed out at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday night, saying the Israeli leader's claims about the deal were "way over the top."

Muslim screaming “Allahu akbar” holds knife to tourist’s neck at Rome’s Colosseum

Chiara Frisco
A tourist was forced to her knees at knifepoint at Rome’s Colosseum in a terrifying attack that recalled an ISIS-style execution.

Hundreds of horrified visitors to the Italian landmark looked on as the attacker held a kitchen knife to the neck of a 26-year-old woman and yelled ‘Allah is great’ and ‘It is God that sends me’.

The man held Chiara Frisco hostage for several minutes as he yelled religious fanaticism at the crowd with police powerless to act.

One witness said: ‘It seemed like a scene from ISIS.

‘He made the girl get down on her knees like you see in the terrorists’ videos, while he held a knife to her throat.

‘The only thing missing was the orange jumpsuit.’

Others told Il Messaggero he was yelling among them “Allah is great”.’

Miss Frisco, from Vasto on the Adriatic coast, who was visiting her sister in Rome to celebrate her graduation, said she feared ‘the worst’ when the knifeman grabbed her.

Speaking from hospital where she was being treated for shock, she said: ‘We came from Vasto to celebrate my sister’s graduation.

‘We were supposed to meet her in the evening. While waiting we decided to take a walk and go and see the Colosseum.’

She was sitting on a low wall with my boyfriend and other friends on Monday afternoon when the ‘maniac’ struck.

She told La Repubblica: ‘I felt myself pulled suddenly into the middle of the crowd. Then I felt the blade of the knife that he was holding against me. I feared the worst would happen.

‘I could not see the weapon. The whole attack lasted seconds but I felt a tremendous fear.

‘The man was yelling like a maniac. Luckily the police came though.’

When the police arrived, the attacker ran off through the Forum packed with tourists towards the centre of Rome, piazza Venezia, where he was disarmed and arrested. …

Russia to Surprise Rivals With Defense and Security Innovations

Russian President Vladimir Putin promised on Tuesday to "please" Russia's competitors with new developments in the field of defense and security.
DVORIKI (Sputnik) — Putin said during an educational youth forum:
"We are yet to delight our partners and competitors with our latest developments in the field of defense and security. But what we will show — and here we will not be keeping secrets forever — will be used in civilian industries one way or another."
In June, Putin said that Russia's defense industry must drive innovation, as forward-thinking is especially important for the fields of energy, engineering, communication and microelectronics, which are major sources of economic growth.
"Any discoveries, achievements, developments in the military field for the needs of defense and security, sooner or later become the property of civilian industry sectors. The Internet was developed in this way," the Russian leader said.

Congressional bill seeks to essentially ban 'gay conversion' programs across the U.S.

Image result for Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank

Residential treatment programs for young people that engage in controversial “gay conversion” therapy would face comprehensive federal regulation under a bill introduced Tuesday on Capitol Hill.

By prohibiting the facilities from discriminating against LGBT and disabled youths and allowing residents or their families to sue in federal court, the proposed legislation could essentially ban so-called gay conversion therapy nationwide.

Many such programs – intended to rehabilitate children with mental health problems, behavioral or substance abuse issues – have been accused of instead starving their charges, restraining them physically and mentally abusing them. Some cases of neglect have led to death or suicide, state statistics have shown.

“We cannot ignore reports that young people have died and thousands have suffered abuse at the hands of those who run and work at residential treatment programs under the guise of providing critical therapy and rehabilitation services,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank), one of the bill’s cosponsors, said at a news conference Tuesday.

An estimated 4,600 teenagers were enrolled in such programs in 2013, said Paul Gionfriddo, president and chief executive of Mental Health America. Families tend to turn to these residential “boot camp” programs as a last resort after unsuccessful experiences with traditional inpatient mental health services, he said.

In some circumstances parents send their children to treatment programs in an effort to change their sexual orientation from gay, lesbian, transgender or bisexual to straight, known as “gay conversion” therapy. California banned the practice in 2012.

Schiff emphasized the need for federal regulation, noting that “programs are often shut down in one state only to open in another under a different name.”

State Sen. Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) introduced similar legislation in California this year to increase regulations and oversight on private residential programs, mandating licensure of such facilities.

Critics questioned the need for federal regulation in states that already regulate residential care facilities. Megan Stokes, director of government and public relations at the National Assn. of Therapeutic Schools and Programs, an industry organization of treatment programs, said such states should be exempt from the bill.

Several law professors agreed that Congress had the constitutional power to enact such legislation. “Such a federal law, which hopefully would eliminate gay conversation therapy, as California law has done, would be clearly constitutional,” according to Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of UC Irvine Law School, who pointed to Congress’ power to regulate interstate commerce.

In April, the White House announced its stance against conversion therapy programs for minors.

IMF Rips Pandora's Box To Shreds, Demands Greek Debt Relief "Far Beyond What Europe Has Been Willing To Consider"

Image result for pandoras box

Earlier today, Reuters first leaked that just two weeks after the IMF released its first revised Greek debt sustainability report, one which the Eurogroup desperately tried to squash as it urged for a 30% debt haircut and came hours before the Greek referendum vote giving the Oxi camp hope and crushing Tsipras' carefully laid plan to lose the vote and capitulate with integrity instead of having to capitulate a week later after 17 hours of "mental waterboarding" and have his reputation torn to shreds, the IMF would release a follow up report updating its view on the Greek economy which in just two short weeks of capital controls has utterly imploded.
Just like the first IMF report, which we correctly compared to the opening of a Pandora's box, and with which the IMF also obliterated the careful plans of the Troika, so with this follow up the IMF effectively crushes the glideslope of the latest Greek bailout process barely scraped together on Monday morning and has torn Pandora's box to shreds with the following summary assessment: "Greece’s debt can now only be made sustainable through debt relief measures that go far beyond what Europe has been willing to consider so far."
Yes, debt relief... just the others' debt: not the IMF's, please.
So what just happened? 
As of this moment the IMF is telling Greece that if nothing changes, it will die of cancer with 100% certainty; on the other hand the Eurogroup is telling Greece it will die of a heart attack also wih 100% certainty if anything changes.
Good luck with the choice.
Here are the report punchlines:
  • Greece’s public debt has become highly unsustainable. This is due to the easing of policies during the last year, with the recent deterioration in the domestic macroeconomic and financial environment because of the closure of the banking system adding significantly to the adverse dynamics. The financing need through end-2018 is now estimated at Euro 85 billion and debt is expected to peak at close to 200 percent of GDP in the next two years, provided that there is an early agreement on a program. Greece’s debt can now only be made sustainable through debt relief measures that go far beyond what Europe has been willing to consider so far.
  • ... significant shortfalls in program implementation during the last year led to a significant increase in the financing need—by more than Euro 60 billion—estimated only a few weeks ago. As a result, debt-to-GDP by 2022 was projected to increase from an estimate less than a year ago of about 105 percent to a revised estimate of 142 percent, significantly above the target of 110 percent of GDP. This would under the November 2012 agreement have implied significant additional measures to reduce the face-value of debt.
  • Greece cannot return to markets anytime soon at interest rates that it can afford from a medium-term perspective.
  • The events of the past two weeks—the closure of banks and imposition of capital controls—are extracting a heavy toll on the banking system and the economy, leading to a further significant deterioration in debt sustainability relative to what was projected in our recently published DSA. A full and comprehensive revision of this debt sustainability analysis can only be done at a later stage, taking into account the deterioration in the economic situation as a result of the closing of the banking system and the details of policies yet to be agreed. However, it is already clear at this stage that there will be a significant increase in the financing need. The preliminary (mutually agreed) assessment of the three institutions is that total financing need through end-2018 will increase to Euro 85 billion, or some Euro 25 billion above what was projected in the IMF’s published DSA only two weeks ago, largely on account of the estimated need for a larger banking sector backstop for Euro 25 billion. Adjusting our recent DSA mechanically for these changes, and taking into account the agreed weaker growth path for the next two years, gives rise to the following main revisions:
    • Debt would peak at close to 200 percent of GDP in the next two years. This contrasts with earlier projections that the peak in debt—at 177 percent of GDP in 2014—is already behind us.
    • By 2022, debt is now projected to be at 170 percent of GDP, compared to an estimate of 142 percent of GDP projected in our published DSA.
    • Gross financing needs would rise to levels well above what they were at the last review (and above the 15 percent of GDP  threshold deemed safe) and continue rising in the long term.
In other words, for every week that the Greek capital controls remain , the total cost of the Greek bailout (the funding needs) increases by €10 billion.
It gets worse: "these projections remain subject to considerable downside risk, suggesting that there could be a need for additional further exceptional financing from Member States with an attendant deterioration in the debt dynamics."
  • Medium-term primary surplus target: Greece is expected to maintain primary surpluses for the next several decades of 3.5 percent of GDP. Few countries have managed to do so. The reversal of key public sector reforms already in place— notably pension and civil service reforms—without yet any specification of alternative reforms raises concerns about Greece’s ability to reach this target. Moreover, the failure to resist political pressures to ease the target that became evident as soon as the primary balance swung into surplus also raise doubts about the assumption that such targets can be sustained for prolonged periods. The Government and its European partners need to address these concerns in the coming months.
  • Growth: Greece is still assumed to go from the lowest to among the highest productivity growth and labor force participation rates in the euro area, which will require very ambitious and steadfast reforms. For this to happen, the Government— which has put on hold key structural reforms—would need to specify strong and credible alternatives in the context of the forthcoming program discussions.
  • Bank support: the proposed additional injection of large-scale support for the banking system would be the third such publicly funded rescue in the last 5 years. Further capital injections could be needed in the future, absent a radical solution to the  governance issues that are at the root of the problems of the Greek banking system. There are at this stage no concrete plans in this regard.
The conclusion:
The dramatic deterioration in debt sustainability points to the need for debt relief on a scale that would need to go well beyond what has been under consideration to date—and what has been proposed by the ESM. There are several options. If Europe prefers to again provide debt relief through maturity extension, there would have to be a very dramatic extension with grace periods of, say, 30 years on the entire stock of European debt, including new assistance. This reflects the basic premise that debt cannot be assumed to migrate back onto the balance sheet of the private sector at interest rates close to the current AAA rates before debt levels have been brought to much lower levels; borrowing at anything but AAA rates in the near term will bring about an unsustainable debt dynamic for the next several decades. Other options include explicit annual transfers to the Greek budget or deep upfront haircuts. The choice between the various options is for Greece and its European partners to decide.
Actually, it is no longer Greece's: Greece is about to hand over its sovereignty to Brussels on a silver platter. The choice is now all up to the European "partners" to decide.

This Is Much More Dangerous to National Security Than Jade Helm

There are worse threats to America than Jade Helm 15.
There are worse threats to America than Jade Helm 15.
There has been something that has been a battle brewing inside of the United States that is devastating to the American way of life. This is worse and far more of a threat than Jade Helm. Specifically, I am speaking about the destruction of the Christian religion in the United States. The demise of Christianity and Christians is planned and it is deliberate.
As bad as he may be, the country can survive the illegitimate Presidency of Obama along with his fascist policies. America can also survive an economic crash, we have done it before. We can even survive the implementation of martial law so long as individual Americans refuse to accept the obliteration of their civil liberties. However, what America cannot survive is the wholesale the destruction of its cultural underpinnings. No nation can survive the destruction of its culture and remain the same and this is precisely what America is going through now.

Cultural Destruction

Our American history books are replete with examples on how the westward movement in this country destroyed the various Native American tribes. The Navajo, the Sioux et al, were not merely defeated because they lost their land, their freedom as many of them lost their lives. They were defeated, in the finality of it all, because they lost their culture. When the Native Americans were conquered, they were literally destroyed because they lost their right to practice their spiritual beliefs, societal mores and family traditions. Many of the children were sent off to harsh boarding schools where they were further deculturized.
America is living in a time when she is being deculturized. We are being stripped of our way of life. This administration would force you to accept homosexual marriage regardless of your religious beliefs and teachings on th subject. Many of the homosexual groups cry out for equality. However, some go much further as they bait the owners of bakeries into lawsuits who will not sell wedding cakes to homosexual couples because it violates their Christian values. Pastors are being threatened with law suits for the same reasons. “We have the right to refuse service to anyone” does not apply to those of a Christian persuasion.
We are also being forced to accept the presence of tens of millions of foreigners on our soil. Some come here with the legitimate intent to become part of the American culture. Some come here to take advantage of the hospitality that has been extended to them. And some come here with long criminal histories and to our current President, he does not care about distinguishing between the three groups of immigrants in which two of these groups of immigrants are clearly deculturizing America because I believe that is his goal. DeculturizingAmerica? Yes! How many immigrants from third world countries can we take on before we become just another third world country ourselves?
tpp introWere you aware that under the provisions of the TPP, we could see 150 million new immigrants coming to America? Where will we get the money to provide water, schooling and medical care?The answer is that we won’t and that is the objective. America is not supposed to survive the unveiling of the New World Order. Although most Americans are generous and we support immigration, we should not be supporting the deliberate deculturizing of America, but we do because we fear being labeled a racist.
As it was Native Americans, we witnessing the destruction of the traditional American culture that is increasingly branded as homophobic, xenophobic and racist for merely wanting to survive.

Christians Founded America

I strongly support the notion of religious toleration. However, as an American citizen, I feel compelled to proclaim that my Christian religion formed the backbone of the creation of this nation. I make no apologies for this statement, because it is true. All first year law students learn that the 10 Commandments form the foundation for our legal code. Subsequently, as I acknowledge the validity of religious toleration as a societal ideal, I will not, and cannot accept the ongoing attacks on the dominant culture and its native and dominant religion by fundamental extremists representing views which run contrary to the dominant culture. We must not acquiesce to the will of the minority. We can honor toleration without sacrificing our national identity.

The Sharia Threat

A senior member of the Saudi monarchy, Alwaleed bin Talal, says he’ll pledge his $32 billion fortune to charity. The Saudi Prince said he will his model his future endowment after the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. As if this is not concerning enough, Alwaleed bin Talal says that the money will primarily be spent on the funding of the spread of Islam in the United States. However, let’s be clear, we are not really talking about understanding, we are talking about the obliteration of the Christian religion as we know it.
This is a very concerning development because Saudi Arabia’s approach to Islam is to censor all criticism of Islam while prohibiting the free practice of any other religion. So much for religious toleration and if we carry this intent out to its logical conclusion, your Christian religion will be banned and the practice of it could result in the forfeiture of your life. Merely look at the Middle East’s treatment of Christians to see what your future could look like.
Alwaleed bin Talal’s involvement is so very concerning because he has already pledged millions to the radicalized Muslim Brotherhood proxy groups to Islamize Americans through the spread of Shariah law.
“Ex-federal prosecutor says is “a major Muslim Brotherhood figure” who has helped raise funds for al-Qaida”. One could safely argue that Islamization of America has already commenced because Alweed bin Talal has already donated $27 million to a Saudi telethon to promote a Palestinian intifada against the nation of Israel as reported by the Clarion project. Last time I checked, Israel was still our ally.
Alaweed bin Talal has also engaged in other concerning Islamo-fascist activities:
  1. Giving $500,000 to the American-Islamic Relations backed by the terrorist groups, namely, the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas the supplier of Russian arms to Syria’s Assad and the new partner of ISIS in Mexico, the various drug cartels.
  2. The spending of an amazing $40 million to expand the study of Islam in American colleges and universities.
  3. He donated $20 million to Harvard to create a “campus-wide Sharia law studies program while also spending the same amount to Georgetown University. It should be mentioned that Sharia law is dedicated to the eradication of all other forms of worship including Christianity.
In any other country, the involvement of someone as heinous as Alaweed would banned from being able to involve themselves in our educational system and politics. However, that is not the case under this President. Do you think for a moment that Putin would put up with this?
Christianity is being marginalized into a tight and narrow corner in many venues including the sports world and our educational system.

The Washington Redskins Quarterback, RG3

The NFL and Christianity do not go together.
Washington Redskins quarterback, Robert Griffin III (RG3) was wearing a Christian T-shirt at a post-game press conference until the NFL said “No way.”  RG3’s shirt read “Know Jesus Know Peace” and, also, “No Jesus No Peace.”
Michael Phillips, a sportswriter for the Richmond Times Dispatch, who was in the room tweeted: “RG3 was wearing a t-shirt that said ‘Know Jesus, Know Peace.’
RG3 acquiesced and turned his shirt inside-out. This certainly will not earn him bonus points on Judgment Day. I wonder if RG3 understands that he will go down in NFL history as the Judas of the sport? Yet, I cannot help wondering if the T-shirt said ” “Allahu Akbar” (الله أكبر)”, the NFL would not have dared to say a word. No, I don’t hate Islam, but the double standard in this country is growing by the day.

Do Not “Cross” the Line

Perhaps a Wiccan symbol would be more appropriate.
Football players from Arkansas State University placed a small Christian symbol on their football helmets to commemorate the lives of the late Markel Owens, a former player, and Barry Weyer, the former equipment manager, according to conservative commentator Todd Starnes.
Louis Nisenbaum, an attorney in Jonesboro, Arkansas, saw the team playing on television, he subsequently wrote to the university’s legal counsel to complain about the cross. Arkansas State University attorney Lucinda McDaniel subsequently agreed that the symbol was a “problem”, recommending that athletic director Terry Mohajir order it removed or alter it.
Mohaij stated this decision to remove the crosses from the helmets was based on the Establishment Clause of the U.S. Constitution. Not so fast, My Great Commissar of Athletics, the First Amendment promises freedom OF religion, not freedom FROM religion. There is a bit of good news, the outcry was felt far and wide and the officials at Arkansas State University, eventually lifted the ban on crosses. However, I cannot help wondering that if the symbol placed on helmets had been a Wiccan symbol, the keepers of the devil’s gate, would not have dared make it an issue. Do you really think that is a far-fetched statement? Please consider the following.

Who Is Really Behind This Evil?

Your child's newest textbook.
Following up on their success in their ability and “right” in getting their agenda into childrens’ minds through Hollywood’s entertainment and music industries“, worshipers of Satan have found a new way into your children’s minds and souls by using the court system to force access to schools and distribute their satanic literature to children while attending school!
Pamphlets are now being distributed to children in the Orange School District (FL), which promotes social justice and the love of Satan. Attention parents of Orange Schools, where are you?


As serious as the threat that Jade Helm poses, these threats to our cultural traditions are far more serious and threaten to deliver a death blow to our way of life.
We are witnessing the persecution of Christians through the principle of incrementalism. Hitler did the same. First, there was the public chastising of the Jews. Then they were denied employment and the right to publicly practice their religion. Then the worst began to happen.
burning booksToday in the United States, the abolishment of Christianity is underway. Through the DHS sponsored Clergy Response Team and making churches into IRS controlled tax exempt foundations, the message from the pulpit is being controlled. Now we are witnessing the marginalizing of Christians and the removal Christian practices from all public venues. Christian traditions are being erased.
A famous quote was offered which helps frame these current events of persecution against Christians “wherever they burn books, in the end, they will burn human beings”.  I would offer a variation of this theme, “where they erase Christianity, they will soon do the same to the followers of the religion”.

Vatican Claims Jerusalem......

woman who rides beast5

A Hebrew Nation News Special Report by Bonnie Harvey
I am concerned about some things I’m seeing in Jerusalem/Israel, so I decided to go back to scripture to examine and re-examine the scripture concerning same, hoping to distinguish my thoughts from the actual words of scripture.
So, actually, what do we know from scripture regarding Israel in the last days? We know that the land will be divided (Joel 3:2) and that the Third Temple will be built, which the pseudo-Messiah will profane (Dan. 9:27Rev. 11:1-2). The word used for “abomination” in this portion of Daniel is “shiqoots,” or, meaning “disgusting.”
Concerning this profaning, we have two examples in history of such “profaning,” the first example being the setting up of a statue of Zeus in the First Temple by Antiochus Epiphanes. The second example is of Titus having carnal knowledge of two prostitutes on the altar with a Torah scroll rolled out beneath them. Daniel was not kidding about the “disgusting” part. “Shiqoots” of the Temple is not limited to history, however, for we can see the Dome of the Rock sitting where the Temple once sat, complete with a sign announcing that Elohim has no son. Perhaps this is the greatest shiqoots in Temple history.
What else do we know about Israel in the last days? We know that Jerusalem will be a cup of staggering to all nations and that all nations will gather against her. In response, Yehovah Himself will strike them down, for Jerusalem is the apple of Yahweh’s eye.
What is Jerusalem’s part in all of this? Has she been unfairly attacked just because Yahweh loves her? Isaiah alludes to her part, her sins, and that her hardship has been/will be punishment rather than any injustice. John calls Jerusalem, i.e., “where the Lord was crucified,” “Sodom” and “Egypt.” Why would John call Jerusalem such accursed names?
What have they done or what are they doing to warrant such address? That is the focus of this article. I am raising issues for our awareness, so we know how to pray, how to interpret, and how to reckon the timeline.
  1. The Timeline.   In Daniel 9, we see the basic elements of a., a ruler who will come, strengthening a covenant (definition) c., with the “many” (rabim, rabble, nations of the world?) d., for 7 years. If we have all of these 4 elements, I urge everyone to take a serious look for this looks very much like the beginning of the 70th week of Daniel. If this is the case, the horses will soon ride globally.
What we have on our plates right now is Israel asking for a 5-7 year treatyand Obama pushing for a 7-year treaty. The Oslo Accord was signed in September of 1993 and was revoked just short of 7 years later, being signed on Elul 27 and was revoked before sundown on Elul 28 seven years later when Ariel Sharon ascended the Temple Mount to pray for the return of Israel. Here’s a Gregorian-to-Hillel converter to help with the calculations.
So, we have the element of “covenant” and the element of “7 years.” Is there any more evidence of the element of a “covenant”?
  1. New Checkpoints. I have had contact with Steven ben Denoon, who is an Israeli citizen who lives in Israel 9 months of the year and is a Messianic Jew. He was on the Hebrew Nation Radio Thursday Morning Show on July 2, 2015, to discuss the new checkpoints and highway changes in Israel recently. He will again appear on this radio program July 23, 2015.
Steven states that for the past 4 years or so, authorities in Israel have been widening Highway 1 from Tel Aviv (the site of the main airport in Israel, Ben Gurion Airport) to Jerusalem. Now, within the past year or so, Steven reports that first the arches appeared, then the remainder of the checkpoint. He has taken pictures of the size of the electrical/electronic capability to the checkpoint, a detail that he concludes is evidence of a sophisticated, passport-checking, high-volume checkpoint.
The truly upsetting aspect of the above is that Hwy. 1 from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is completely within Jewish held, occupied, ruled, and unchallenged territory. Hitherto, checkpoints have only been established between Arab occupied and Jewish occupied parcels. Why build checkpoints between Jewish held land and a Jewish held city, Jerusalem? Is the answer simple? Does the answer reflect the decision of our own Supreme Court? Is the answer that Jerusalem has already been established as an international city, sovereign from Israel and under another’s rule and authority?
Steven reports that many Israelis are concerned, but, just like America, they’re not rebelling because they still have goods, peace, and services.
Below are some photos that were taken by Steven ben DeNoon:

Above: The size of the cables reveal a checkpoint that will have sophisticated resources.
Is Steven ben DeNoon the only one noticing and calling attention to these new barricades? No. Pastor Paul Begley, and earnest watchman, interviewsIsrael citizen, Simantov Allaloof, who has also watched the new construction and raises the same questions as ben DeNoon.
arch in jerusalem4
Above: The new high-speed light rail train between Ben Gurion Airport and Jerusalem.  
“Why,” asks ben De Noon, “does Israel need an entirely new system between the airport and Jerusalem? Buses are adequate. Is Israel going to see a great influx of visitors? From where?” Then, he wonders aloud concerning just what would make Jerusalem such a magnet for such a sizable increase. The possibilities he voices are concerning.
That question raises the next issue.
  1. Who is paying for these improvements? If we answer this question, we might get to the bottom of what is actually occurring.
An Italian journalist writing for Arutz Sheva twice weekly, Giulio Meotti, wrote an article that was published June 30, 2015, in which he outlined Vatican disregard for Jewish access and control of the Temple Mount. After discussing Pope John Paul’s visit to the Arab-flag bedecked Temple Mount in 2000, Meotti concludes that the papal visit, hosted solely by the PLO, was the Vatican “recognition of Islamic hegemony” and of the Islamic and Christian “right” to supersede Jewish interests in the holy places.
Most disturbingly, Meotti writes that “the Vatican-PLO agreements have been signed to enable the eviction of the Jews from Jerusalem.” Other agreements have been signed, including a memorandum of “preserving the proper identity and sacred character” of Jerusalem by returning to a pre-67 scenario wherein Jews were barred from the Old City and half of the city was under Islamic rule.
Meotti’s sentiments were echoed on the site NowTheEndBegins.com. The title of the article is, The Vatican Wants the Temple Mount Taken from the Jews, where he quotes the above Meotti source.
On June 26, 2015, the Associated Press released a story with the banner, Vatican Sign Treaty with “State of Palestine.” The Treaty recognized a Palestinian State and regulated Catholic participation within the new State. This Treaty was the first to recognize Palestine as a State.
pope and company
Above: Vatican Foreign Minister Gallagher and Riad al-Malki after signing the first treaty recognizing Palestine as a State.
Additionally, Steven ben DeNoon reports that a beautiful new mall has been constructed just outside of Jaffa Gate, complete with an elaborate Catholic church in the middle of the mall.   DoNoon ponders this strange juxtaposition and wonders if paying for the construction of the mall earned the Catholic right to put a church in the middle.
Again, Arutz Sheva reporter, Guilio Meotti, wrote in an article entitled, A Seat for the Pope at King David’s Tomb, that Netanyahu granted the Pope an official seat in the room where the Last Supper is believed to have been held on Mt. Zion. It is also the believed to be the Tomb of King David. This agreement is expected to be ratified in the near future. Meotti, once again, outlines the long struggle and extreme interest of the Catholic Church in obtaining possession, rights, control, and dominion over this site (and dozens of other sites) while consistently “working to reduce Jewish rights in Jerusalem” and “campaigning with the Arabs against Israel.” The agreement will allow this site on Mt. Zion to open for mass from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. It is here, close to the Temple Mount, that the newly ordered “Mass to Lucifer” will be sung daily.
DeNoon researched briefly concerning just who was paying to the new checkpoints and rail system, the answer, “Taxes and a private entity.” NO information regarding the “private entity.” I’ve asked him to research the “private entity.”
In the meantime, let’s ask some questions. What “private entity” has an extreme interest in Jerusalem? What “private entity” has enough money to build major infrastructural changes in a nation? What does the pope want with the ostensible room for the last supper of Yeshua (probably not), but, probably is the burial place of King David. Is the pope’s interest more in the seat of King David? Is he preparing the way for the pseudo-messiah to reign from Jerusalem? Is that why the need for a new rail system? For the dignitaries that will flock to the pseudo-messiah? Will the imposter rule from Jerusalem? Will this  “international” city be cut off from Israel? Is this fulfillment of  prophesy unfolding before our eyes, about the “siege” (to isolate/cut off/restrict) that is laid against Jerusalem?
Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem.  Zechariah 12: 2
Is that the reason for the checkpoints in to west Jerusalem?
  1. Is there any other suspicious building activity in or around Jerusalem? Yes. Routes north and south of Jerusalem, mostly Arab-occupied land, is enjoying a surge of freeway construction which appears to link Arab-occupied land, East Jerusalem, and other surround Arab-occupied lands, thus eliminating their need to pass through Israeli checkpoints.
Below, we see another Steven ben DeNoon photo, showing a new freeway from Ramallah (Arab city north of Jerusalem) into Jerusalem. NO checkpoints.

5. The Ruler to come – Islamocatholicism. (aka Woman who rides the beast, from Revelation 17).
Let’s look at Daniel 9 again. “The people of the ruler to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary.” Who are the people who destroyed the sanctuary? The Romans. The leader who signs the covenant will be related to Rome. Let’s look at Daniel’s statue again.

“Five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; but when he does come, he must remain for a little while. 11 The beast who once was, and now is not, is an eighth king. He belongs to the seven and is going to his destruction.” (Rev 17:10-11)
John noted that the Roman empire was the sixth because “five have fallen, and one is,” i.e., the legs of iron. The empire that was in existence during John’s life was Rome, who is the iron in the statue, a generally accepted interpretation since the 1st Century congregations.
Notice that Rome, the legs of iron, are two separate entities. Rome split into the Western Roman Empire and the Eastern.   Read a fascinating and brief history on how and why the Catholic Church helped to guide Mohammad, by Jesuit Cardinal, Augustine Bea. The goal, states this cardinal, was to ultimately gain Jerusalem by roping in the children of Ishmael as cohorts against the Jews. A closer look at both religions reveals surprising similarities – Mary worship, covering of women in the same manner, prayer beads, salvation by works, paganism, abuse of women, convert-or-die, and many more. This brief background by a cardinal helps us establish a background against which we can better interpret what we’re seeing.
When we look at the two legs and understand the history, I offer that we can see that Islam is eastern Catholicism, or, that Catholicism is western Islam.They are not divisible! The Pope Francis has even declared the Koran to be the same as scripture and may be read during mass and that Allah is the God of the Christian Bible.
Please notice, also, that the iron continues down to the feet, which is mixed with clay. (The clay are the demonic entities that will breed with man, as in Genesis 6.) East/west Isamocatholicism will continue until the stature is destroyed by the Rock (“eben”: ab (Father) + ben (Son) = Rock). The dominance of Rome/Islam continues until the second coming!
Back to Daniel 2, “the people who destroyed the sanctuary” were the Romans-who-are-the-same-as-Islamists. Who is the pseudo-messiah and who is the false prophet of Revelation? I offer that one will be from the right leg and one from the left leg of iron from Daniel’s vision, and it matters not which is which. At the present time, to see Islam and Catholicism acting in concert against Israel/Jerusalem should be no surprise.
  1. Sign the covenant with “the many.” We have one more element to discuss, and that is the signing of the covenant per Daniel 9:27. The Hebrew word here is “rab,” from which, I offer, we derive our English word “rabble.” This covenant is signed with many people, “the many.”
Do we have any meeting on our near horizon where the leaders of many nations will be gathering with a representative of the legs of iron, i.e., Islamocatholicism?   The pope will meet with the full United Nations on September 25, 2015, after meeting with the leader of the current American administration. Will a covenant be signed at that time?
7. Will some Jews, Muslims, and Christians receive the pseudo-messiah? Ultra-Orthodox Rabbi Cahaim Kanievsky has made a call of all Jews to return to Israel to receive the messiah , whose appearance is “imminent.” He stated to a querying Jew, “Gather your family and come to Israel. Otherwise, there won’t be enough room for you on the airplanes,” hinting that the 9th of Av(July 25) could see this event.

Ultra Orthodox Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky calls for imminent Aliyah.
The Bible Codes also seem to hint that the messiah will return in 2016, which on the Jewish calendar, commences September 14, 2015.
Rabbi Chaim is not alone in his call for urgency, for the Muslims have issued a similar call to herald the coming Mahdi. The Mahdi, they say, will return 2015-16.
Are some Jews, Muslims, and Christians preparing to accept the wrong messiah?
Summary. We have discussed the four elements of Daniel 9:27. These are the elements we need – 1. an Islamocatholic leader (probably), 2. will sign a covenant, 3. with many nations, 4. for a term of 7 years. If that happens this September, may all who love Yehovah take note.
We have also discussed recent occurrences in Israel – the building of checkpoints that appear to isolate Jerusalem from Israel; the building of roads that appear to link all of the territories the Arabs expect to obtain when Israel is divided; the exertion of papal control over sensitive sites in Jerusalem, especially David’s Tomb; the Islamocatholic effort to push Jews out of the Temple Mount and Jerusalem in general.
We are left to wonder, is the Vatican establishing a seat for the final beast? Is the Vatican the “woman” who rides the New World Order/Islamic Beast?  What role, if any, does the state of Israel play in all of this? Is it the right to worship on the Temple Mount during Feasts? On Sabbaths? Is it the promise of peace?
We can be certain that the signs we are seeing is evidence that we are in the last days. Once/if the covenant is signed, I offer that the horses will ride and the globe will go where we’ve never been.
I urge each one to fast, repent, pray, and read scripture. I offer that we are, even now, today, being scrutinized for fitness to serve in the vineyard during the upcoming great harvest.
Whatever happens, let us that our own feeble humanity isn’t the issue, for we are told, “’Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD.” Understanding our anxiety over the days in which we live, Yeshua said, “And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
